MICROSOFT seemingly has no interest in bringing this popular PlayStation technology to Xbox Series X, as new next-gen console details emerge.

New details have been revealed about this year's ultra-powerful Xbox Series X console. It all started when AMD showed an image of the back of the new machine, complete with all of the system's various ports and inputs. While this would turn out to be a render and not an official shot of the console, new information has since surfaced confirming what's actually on the back of the device - and it's pretty revealing.

According to a post on Thurrott, the Xbox Series X will have a grand total of seven ports  - although one may only be used for debugging, and might not feature on the final release.

If the post is accurate, the Xbox Series X will feature two USB-A ports, which Thurrott describes as "of the SuperSpeed variety".

Fans will also be pleased to hear that there's an ethernet port, as well as an optical audio input and a power connection.

Interestingly, as VG247 points out, the size of the power input suggests the Xbox Series X will use an internal power supply (so hopefully this means the only brick will be the console itself).
